Church | Communication

Church communications ideas, tips, and thoughts from Christian leaders. Learn about church marketing and outreach ideas to help your ministry communicate effectively.

A little fun, flashback to our first marketing campaign…

I ran across these ads we did way back in 2005 when WHM launched. I got a good laugh. I still think they are pretty good, if a little bit outdated… Enjoy.

Using Media To Create Discussion

“With so much drama in the LBC, it’s kinda…”

Recently, it seems that there is a lot of discussion and debate out there. Here at Worship House we had a little saga concerning our giving away, “Are You Amazed. Floodgate, then, comes out with “Doubter’s Confession,” which created some discussion. And a few weeks ago, there was the group that bashed Christianity Today”s Jeffrey Overstreet for having an opinion about “Christian” media.

Yesterday, one of my favorite companies, 37signals, launched Highrise. Their blog post about the launch had over 135 comments last I checked, most complaining about the free version that is offered… ironic.
Gordon McDonald raises some great questions in his post “2008 Questions,” creating quite the stir on Leadership’s blog Out of Ur.

I am tempted to encourage everyone to just get along, but to be honest, I kind of like all the debate. Does debate have its place in church? Are people mature enough to discuss issues and think on a deep level and still get along, respecting each other. And finally, how can media play a part in these discussions?

Earlier this morning, I watched a great film by 18Doughty Street that Phil Cooke blogged about and it raises some good questions. Are there videos like this that could be created (in love) pushing tough issues to the forefront? What are those issues? What would those videos look like?
Argue nicely…

A Sunday Morning Blooper

We know there are some worship pastors out there that will enjoy this audio clip. (Hit the play arrow right below the “Phreaky Phriday: Holy is the…” title)

You gotta hate it when the capo is on the wrong fret. But, there is a lesson here… don’t ever give up. If it doesn’t fit, force it.

Enjoy.

Top 20 Websites for Church Communicators-Outreach

If you work at a church and you communicate, you will want to check out Outreach’s Top 20 Websites for Church Communicators. Worship House made the top 5, coming in at NUMBER 4. We were pumped because of two things, 1) we didn’t know it until we read it and 2) the list was by one of the main bloggers of ChurchMarketingSucks.com, Kevin D. Hendricks, who we really like and is an authority on helping churches be effective.
